the constitution says they have to have a defense that we can't afford apparently? i met yesterday with maryland district court judges, about eight of them, and they raised this issue as one of critical importance and one of the judges, a reagan appointee, was obviously very animated at how we were undermining the very essence of the judicial system. surely no one on this floor intends to do that. at the defense department 650,000 vifflian workers are already -- civilian workers are already being furloughed two days a month. that's an effective cut and pay by 20%. the hardworking people whom we rely to maintain the national security of our country. on july 2 i visited with pax ian defense works from and talked with those who were forced to stay at home without pay. they were concerned about their family's finances but, mr. speaker, these hardworking and patriotic public servants were far more worried about support for our troops on the field on friday when many are forced to stay at home. they can't legally come to work and volunteer their time. the sequester is hurting morale and putting our na

's being unfairly treated. >> michael: what is his defense now? >> even if you don't agree with what bradley manning did he's facing up to two decades in jail no matter what the outcome of this trial is. his argument is that he never intended to aid any enemy. there is no evidence that he actually ever did. there are reports that the government made with the c.i.a. the state department, damage assessments, and they all concluded that wikileaks really didn't create much damage. it was embarrassing to the government but there was no harm. yet the government is going ahead with this draconian charge, and it will make it difficult for reporters to report on this information. >> michael: you say this trial has set a dangerous precedence for journalist. >> the aiding the enemy statute is potentially dangerous. all the experts agree this will have huge implications for future whistle blowers. a great example is bob woodward, america's most famous journalist--second. >> michael: good correction. >> he had a book that came out a few years ago and osama bin laden before he died recommended it
and they do good work and also a strong conventional defense. but it's a matter of priority and i really believe if we pull this thread, we'll find a bigger issue here. the issue is money and power. there are many corporations who benefit from these programs, as well as employees, i should say appointed officials within the intelligence community who bounce back and forth between government and corporate service and it's a cash cow to be quite frank. we have other, i believe, issues that politicians are ignoring because there is concern about votes. again, i'll go back to the southern border. certain politicians do not want to talk about security there. i would love to hear from some that are retire that have no fear of retired border officials that talk about how secure the border is. >> if i can interject, anderson, one defish see in that number, it doesn't state whatever was failed couldn't have been foiled with the patriot act section 215 in the fourth amendment. just to say we foiled something doesn't mean you have to go to that dragnet surveillance to discover what needed to be dis
coming and testifying, what does that look like. especially when they're trying to defend defense what the sec is alleging here. >> just makes you wonder what happened, why they stopped cooperating in may. we talked with jacob frankel and he said the company was cooperate to go a certain point and it makes him wonder if other companies will rethink cooperation. >> optics are confusing especially considering cohen and s.a.c. settled with the sec in march 6$616 million. they had to have believed they would clear them of any potential forthcoming action. and to see that come two months later, they must have been extremely confused. so i think that when they probably stopped cooperating, i don't know this for sure, but they had to have been under the impression that whatever they were doing to cooperate wasn't working. and that they would be better off not cooperating. but certainly an interesting turn of events and wield very to s we'll have to see what the charges look like. >> thank you very much. joining us is hugh johnston. we appreciate your time to talk about some of these numbers.
yesterday i told the voters other texts and photos were likely to come out and today they have. that defense sounds to me like hey, voters, you were warned. >> let's say he is the chuck yager of sex scandals. he is constantly pushing the envelope. this is the right stuff for sex scandals. nobody has ever been here before but what will be his undoing, savannah, the longer we go out from this point and press conference we'll look at the timeline and realize what he was doing and what he was saying publicly while he was having the "people" magazine articles written about anthony weiner, and the new york times magazine cover, we supposedly got a new and improved anthony weiner, and it was obviously a different person called carlos danger. >> the name he went by. i want to ask you about huma abedin. she is asking voters to make a distinction between the personal and political saying she has forgiven him but hasn't she herself blurred that line now by putting herself into the campaign? she is in the campaign videos and she spoke yesterday at the news conference. >> what she did yesterday was extra
? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do? shut down military bases in kentucky? what this debate really is about is that in order to have enough money for national defense -- which i think is a priority for the government -- you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. >>steve: who's right on this? and is this debate good for the republican party? let's talk to our republican strategist brad todd. good morning. what did you make of that give-and-take? you're the king of bacon. no, you're the king of bacon! >> i halfway expect at any moment we're going to hear more schoolyard talk than i hear from a three and four-year-old at a preschool. it's did not, did too. i think in the end it is a good debate for the republican party to have in the open. it would be worse for it to fester in the back room. >>steve: it started a couple of days ago where chris christie who apparently is okay with an n.s.a. spying program talked a little bit about how there is this strain of libertarianism going through both parties right now making big headlines.
majority in the house, which is after all the last line of defense against the president, and could materially undercut the ability of the republicans in the senate to have the majority in 2014 which they have a decent chance to do. >> roy blunt said something similar on another channel today. your thoughts. >> let me make three points. number one, obama care isn't working, in the words of its lead author, max bach us, it is a train wreck. he had to unilaterally delay the employer mandate until after the next election because it is not working and democrats are scared of electoral responsibility. number two, if we want to stop this train wreck from hitting hard working american families, the time to do so is now. what the administration desperately wants is to get to january, get exchange in place and subsidies in place, and they eliminated any eligibility test, they want people hooked on obama care so it can never be unwound. if we're going to repeal it, we've got to do so now or it will remain with us forever. but number three, most importantly, we have an opportunity in the next
